Hi! I'm Derek Schulte

I’m a 4th year Mechanical Engineer and love to build cool things, experience the outdoors, and travel. Small groups have been an important part of my faith formation since freshman year, allowing me to meet up with fellow Catholics and discuss a wide range of topics thorough the lens of faith.

Derek's group meets on Mondays at 7:00 pm in the Catholic Center.

Hi! My name is Frazier and I'm a fourth year Computer Science ACCEND student at the University of Cincinnati. I enjoy playing piano, volunteering with community organizations, and in-depth discussions with good friends.

Frazier's group meets on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm in TUC TBD starting January 16th.

I'm David Tangeman and I'm a 5th year Computer Engineering student focusing on Factory systems and PLCs. I love playing music with the Bearcat Bands, rooting for everything Cincinnati, volunteering with various professional and student organizations, and hanging with friends.

Originally from Midwest Ohio and moving to Cincinnati has helped me grow. I've had many good experiences from both locations, student groups, and service trips that have brought me closer to God. I'm looking forward to sharing those experiences, yours, and that of others to help us all reflect and share the glory of God.

David's group meets on Wednesdays at 5:30 pm in TUC 407 starting January 17th. After January 17th, his group will meet in TUC 413.

My name is Luke Swanson, and I'm a 4th-year biomedical engineering student here at UC. I'm originally from the always fabulous Northeastern Ohio, hailing from the town of Wadsworth. I am passionate about NBA-related debate topics, the correct amount of stuffing in oreos, and I prefer my puns intended. I'm an avid pro at slacklining and spikeball, and I am a die-hard Cleveland sports fan. But most of all, I'm just an individual defined by my faith and dependence on God. I am passionate about ministry, and the ways that fellowship has radically impacted my faith in college. As I aim to pursue Christian masculinity and a life centered around the Lord, I'm most excited to serve and share His glory with others.

Luke and Paul's group is for men only and they meet on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in TUC TBD starting January 17th.

My name is Paul Stucker and I am a 2nd year Operations Management student.

Stuckster, Pstuck, Pauly, Paulina, and Poo are all names used to grab my attention.

You can often find me somewhere on campus tossing a frisbee or football. A few of my passions include, woodworking, backpacking and any sport activity.

What invigorates me the most though, is building a community for God. I look to always be a Disciple and Missionary for Christ, and I am not afraid to dream big.

I am excited join others in their faith journeys, and to grow closer to the Father, together.

Luke and Paul's group is for men only and they meet on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in TUC TBD starting January 17th.
